Hey everybody,

It's been a while since I've posted, but better late than never! I've been completely obsessed with Polaroids for about a month now, and the last editorial I shot yesterday, I shot it completely in Polaroids. I know a lot of people are gonna think I'm crazy, but I've been influenced by Terry Richardson's work lately...

And believe it or not, I have a model friend who actually LIKES that snapshotty kind of style, so she and I got to shootin' yesterday, and here's a few of 'em. All shot with a Polaroid One-Step and a bunch of film...



Anyways, whatever you think, please let me know! And regardless of the critique, have a happy Thanksgiving. ^_^

P.S.: Just so you all can breathe a sigh of relief, I have no plans of selling my SLRs and replacing them with a little instant Polaroid camera!! Just something I wanted to try.

I'm particular biased towards the SX-70 stuff. I know one can make about any photo look like they are shot on traditional film, but there is something about the physical medium that is just awesome.

Oh man, I've been THIS CLOSE to getting an SX-70 off of eBay, but they don't make the SX-70 film anymore, do they? That's pretty much the only thing that's been keeping me from paying for one...

And I know what you mean. I could've shot these digital and put a Polaroid border around 'em, but what fun would that've been? And I wouldn't have the imperfection of the little plastic pola lens, either.

Sam,

These are awesome. They have a look about them that screams spontaneous. One of these days I'll get a film camera, but digital is helping me along the way. Thanks for posting and have a great Thanksgiving!

Nice look and feel (the snapshot look) and fun. I always liked to play with the Polaroids and shot thousands of them back in the 70's when I was using an RB67. That was about the only way to get the lighting ratios and color balance setup. Recently I am playing with Polaroid effects in PS. Here is a recent example:


Cheers,
rfs

JW -- Thanks! I know what you mean -- I love the quality of film, but digital is excellent for learning composition, etc. on, as you can see the results right away. Thanks again, and -- even though this is rather late -- hope you had a good Thanksgiving, too!

RFS -- Thank you! And funny you mention the RB, as I just got one of those not too terribly long ago. Love that one, too.

Mark -- Oh cool, thanks for letting me know. Looks like getting an SX-70 is getting put on my to-do list.
